Metrogaine 10:00 am start 4:00 pm finish

Cyclogaine  10:30 am start 3:30 pm finish

LOCATION

Change your view of the Frankston region, a great way to discover all the wild areas of the region in a day.

Discover pristine rock lined creeks to a 660 megalitres dam, sculptures that twist in the breeze, large natural wetland with hundreds of bird species, bottomless eerie quarries, historic homesteads, scenic bayside cafes and arty adventurous playgrounds.
Do the 6 hour Metrogaine on foot or 5hr Cyclogaine using a hybrid or mountain bikes are recommended. With the exception of the Mt Eliza area the course is flattish. In the hilly corner we have included contour lines to alert you. Only the fast cycling teams will need to venture into that corners.

Most of the course is suitable for road bikes, however there are some gravel tracks and sandy tracks.
